Now that we’ve begun our expansion, the question we hear all the time has shifted from “When’s it going to start?” to “When’s it going to be finished?” Like all Padawans, we must practice patience. But here’s what we know, for now (it’s always changing, you know):
Phase 1 (also known as our new deli, produce, and wellbody departments, our new checkout lanes, and the much anticipated new entrances with automatic doors) is scheduled to be complete around June 20.
Phase 2 (our new packaged grocery and frozen food departments) is scheduled to be complete around July 10.
Phase 3 (our new meat and dairy departments, our new classroom space, our new bathrooms and offices) is scheduled to be complete around August 21.
Phase 4 (some employee-only areas, like our bulk and produce prep areas) is scheduled to be complete by the end of September.
If all goes according to schedule, we should be able to celebrate our grand opening this fall, to coincide with our Member Appreciation Week, Annual Member Meeting, and 45th Year Celebration!
